In fact, Republican senator Robert Karnes sent around a form letter with a special session wish list, with flood relief coming in a distant fourth place. As Gazette-Mail reporter Eric Eyre noted,
Karnes’ letter devotes five sentences to the importance of passing school bathroom restrictions — and one sentence about flood response.
Now THAT'S what I call a priority.
I mean, it could work as a jobs bill if we hired a state trooper to stand outside every bathroom and match the sex specified on the birth certificate of those wishing to use the facility against what appears to be down there now, right?
In any case, I loved this editorial on the subject from the Beckley Register-Herald.
